First off, 5500 is a complete rip off for that engine.
Second, you need to think of what you want from the car long term, and how much work and money you are willing to put into it.
Want to do some work yourself and put money into it for a motor build? Grab a b20, mate it with a gsr or b16 tranny, and then do i/h/c/e mods and maybe even eventually a vtec head and some possible extra engine work and you'll have a pretty fun quick little all motor b20 that should get around 200whp, depending on the upgrades and whatnot.
Looking for boost later? B18s are better to start with if you plan on going 300+, b20s can give you more torque but you have unreliable sleeves at 300+
Don't really care? Grab a b20 or b18c, get a good tranny if you want it to be a bit more peppy.
